1945 Jaeger-LeCoultre Vintage Mens Art Deco Dress 14K Gold Watch - Box & Papers

Connoisseur of Time

Item No. 7318

Long ago Jaeger-LeCoultre built their reputation as masters of watch design with iconic models like the Reverso. The company continued to carry on the tradition with watches like this one.

The beautiful LeCoultre wristwatch featured in today's offering showcases a wonderful late Art Deco design. From the uncommon and dramatic, 14K gold case with sculpted lugs, to the striking, two-tone dial and high-grade Jaeger-LeCoultre movement, this watch showcases the style and quality associated with the "Grande Maison."

It is a World War II era watch made for the U.S. market.

All of its parts are original. Its signed LeCoultre case is in excellent condition with one area of wear on the side of the lower right lug. Its striking dial has just been professionally restored. And its very fine handwound Jaeger-LeCoultre movement is running strong and true.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw, cleaned and oiled it, and installed a new correct mainspring.

After more than 75 years, it is still keeping extremely impressive time, running accurately within a few seconds per day.

For the finishing touch we have installed a brand new genuine crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Accompanying it are its rare original box and papers, also signed Vacheron & Constantin.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a new timing certificate.

At the beginning of modern watchmaking is Jaeger-LeCoultre, the esteemed watch firm created and built by Antoine LeCoultre, whose tireless commitment to quality and innovation launched the advancement of fine timepieces as we know them. As a true 'manufacture' of timepieces, Jaeger-LeCoultre helps set the standard for luxury watchmaking.

The company's workmanship is so respected that other esteemed Swiss watchmakers such as Patek Philippe and some of the world's top watch firms used Jaeger-LeCoultre movements to power their pieces.
